Great vintage clip of Anson Weeks & His Orchestra performing in 1932 complete with dance scenes. Anson Weeks was born in Oakland, CA and formed his first band in 1924. In 1929, he began performing under the moniker "Anson Weeks and His Hotel Mark Hopkins Orchestra” and broadcast from the Hotel Mark Hopkins in San Francisco.
